Mahseh Center

The Mahseh Center is a Christian retreat house located in Kewanna, Indiana.(http://www.mahseh.org/) This past weekend the entire Resident Life staff at Trinity took two days to relax, laugh, and receive a couple teachings here. It was a beautiful weekend and it was a much needed weekend. To be able to reconnect with those friends to whom I only get to say hello to as we pass; to be able to share, cry, laugh and pray together was a true privilege. The lake the house is located on was frozen and allowed for some to walk across it while others of us remained inside playing games and spending time reflecting. This place was beautiful and so was my time. Below are pictures of the home and some of the most amazing people in the world. (And I just wanted to say that I finally got the courage to shoot in fully manual!)

Snapshots of My Childhood

I look at these photographs and a flood of memories come to mind. I think, wow Lord, You are good! 

(Oh, and I had to change the background because apparently mine is no longer available)

Random Thoughts

Just thought I would share with you all this picture of Greg and I at our Senior year of High School Prom, almost 4 years ago! Can't believe I wore a white prom dress, sometimes I crack my self up.

Okay, so wow, I've already been engaged for three weeks!!!
The first week was celebratory, see everybody I knew and hug and kiss them.
The second week was my besties actual wedding week, her moment to shine, my moment to serve.
The third week, well, I've spent it sick as a dog, laying in bed. But, I managed to get up, shower, and curl my hair, I feel like a bride again :)

I feel kinda outta control, I feel as though I've planned my whole wedding already. But, I mean, I just can't resist, I am a planner and a wedding fanatic! I think it is so funny how my whole life I've planned secret weddings and the one I am currently planning looks nothing like I ever created before, but I absolutely love how it is all coming together!

As some of you may or may not know, with blogspot.com you can see the stats of how many times your blog gets visited, no worries I can't tell who sees it, just how many times daily it gets viewed. I have to admit, it makes my day when I see that people have visited and apparently a lot of people do read it! Something that many people do is keep a wedding website or blog. I've thought about it and wondered if people would enjoy reading/looking at it.

So, I have a request:

*If you do read THIS blog, would you comment to let me know if you would visit my wedding blog/site, too. You can just do it anonymously and tell me in the message its you. (Like Grams B does :) If enough of you want it, I will devote to doing it. I look forward to your comments :)
